VA Choice Program

What is the VA Choice Program?

The Veterans Choice Program is part of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 (VACAA). If you are already enrolled in VA health care, the Choice Program enables you to receive health care within your community, instead of waiting for a VA appointment or travelling to a VA facility.

To learn more about the VACAA click here. To confirm your eligibility for VA health benefits click here.

Using this program does NOT impact your existing VA health care, or any other VA benefit. It expands options for veterans seeking treatment. For more information on the VA Choice Program, click here.

If you did not receive a Choice Card or if you cannot find your card, please call 1-866-606-8198 to learn more about eligibility for the Veterans Choice Program.

When calling to determine eligibility, to ensure the care needed is covered by VA, and to schedule appointments, you will be asked for:

  • Your first and last name
  • Your full address
  • Your date of birth
  • The last 4 digits of your social security number
  • The name of your preferred community physician. Not all physicians will be eligible to participate in the program, so if your preferred physician is not available, we may be able to recommend other physicians in your area.
